St Ives Society of Artists held its annual 'Square Deal' fundraiser

Prior to visiting Stisa, there was just time to pop into Porthmeor Studios, Back Road West, St Ives to view 'Spot the Artist' 2019.
Organised by St Ives Rotary the show included around 400 anonymous postcard sized artworks donated by over 300 artists, many of whom are very well known. Sale day was Sunday, 22nd September from 10.00 am, with all artworks priced at £50 each. Don't know yet whether my submission 'Coast, Big Sky' below sold, but fingers are crossed. Update: the painting sold - to the tenth person to walk through the door when the show opened
